The Cove House Inn, Chiswell, Portland

This session seems to be under a bit of a cloud at the moment.
There is usually something happening on a Thursday evening, it's advertised as a 'folk night' on the pub's website and the landlady has confirmed this.
However, there have been occasions when a band has been booked without any of the regular musicians being told.
At the moment the best advice is to phone the pub before travelling to avoid disappointment.

The Old School Session

The Old School, Church Street, Sturminster Marshall, near Wimborne

We meet at The Old School, Church Street, Sturminster Marshall, near Wimborne, Dorset, once a month, on the dates listed on web site (usually the second Friday of the monty), from 8pm to 10.30pm.

The purpose of the sessions is to allow novice folk musicians to practice at a nice slow pace (as slow as necessary). Learning on your own at home is good but sooner or later you'll want to step out and play with other musicians.
The Old School Session is a halfway house between home and the pub sessions.
You can practice the art of playing tunes in a session environment, have some
fun, and hopefully learn a few things along the way.

There's no audience, just your fellow musicians. Even though there are a lot of tunes on the list, you only need to learn one to start with. Just sit
out the tunes you don't know and listen. Your personal tune list will
soon grow, and in time you'll be playing along with more tunes and putting sets together.

Look at the website before coming along!
